Water Supply

Water service / water supply

Dickson Plumbing & Gas Fitting offer a new installation service, repairs, modifications and replacement of water supplies to your premises.

The importance of supplying water can be easily overlooked. With new homes the correct pipe sizing and pressure will be setup to comply with up to date standards.

Galvanized piping was the material used in older buildings, although this material did a good job for a long time it will not last for ever, culminating in rust from the inside and slowly reducing the internal diameter while releasing rust deposits into your drinking water. We can help you with the replacement and can offer a range of new materials.

Other Problems with water supply can be inadequate pipe sizing, this is really obvious when multiple taps are turned on at the same time.

High pressure can damage a new mixer tap or modern fixtures that should not have more then 500 KPA, it could also reduce the chance of a burst pipe. In some homes that suffer from water hammer reducing the pressure can help.

If you think the water pressure is too high in your building give us a call we can test and install limiting valves if needed.
